DCTS Philosophy and Guiding Principles
At DCTS, we believe oppression in any form is a societal blight that requires a broad societal response. Since such a response requires input from all sectors of society, DCTS is committed to engaging the wisdom and resources of community partners in our efforts to modify the social beliefs, behaviors, and attitudes that perpetuate violence, disenfranchisement, and other destructive behaviors.
The experiences of persons who have successfully overcome barriers of destructive violence/abuse and have transitioned into independent living are a rich source of insight and information concerning the multifaceted needs of victims and efficient strategies for meeting those needs. By sharing their testimonies, survivors can encourage those experiencing violence/abuse and help service, governmental, and nonprofit organizations implement a more efficient program and outreach strategies. DCTS is committed to engaging our clients as passionate advocate partners in our efforts.
No matter how innovative or theoretically sound programs or services may be, success will be minimal if not implemented in an atmosphere where safety and privacy are the foremost concerns. We believe that a safe environment is a key to assisting clients to navigate their path to real independence successfully. Through successful community partnerships, active involvement of our clientele, and with safety and privacy as our principal concerns, DCTS is committed to promoting self-renewal and healing for anyone affected by violence, substance abuse, bullying, or stigma that limits them, etc.
